I had an awful pain after having had a large bowel movement over 6 weeks ago. This movement caused an anal fissure and caused a pile. It put me in a very depressive mood as every time thereafter I dreaded going to the toilet. When I did my fissure just split and bled and the initial pain was bad. To top it all I had an internal pile also which did the exact same!
I did some research and most off it pointed to high fibre diet and drinking plenty fluids. So I did..... The result was initially worse as I was going to the toilet 4 times a day. I read with interest a colorectal surgeons standpoint that your PRIORITY here was to allow the fissure to heal and not to pack yourself up with endless fibre.
So..... I continued, on his advice and cut back on the 'lots off fibre' theory and took just a little bit off fibre and drank plenty off fluids. I was having one bowel movement a day usually first thing in the morning which allowed 24 hours healing before the next.
My only advice to you all is BUY DRIED PRUNES. BUY PHYSILLIUM HUSK CAPSULES. BUY ANUSOL. DRINK FLUIDS CONSTANTLY. EXERCISE. HAVE BATHS FOR THE TIME OF HEALING. It friggin works. It takes a good few weeks but it works!! Your day should be like this.
Get up, go to fridge chew 4 prunes downed with water (as prunes are a bit sweet... Remember you don't have to love prunes... Your trying to heal). Take 3 psyllium husk capsules. Have your coffee. Coffee brings on a movement. Once movement has been done insert anusol for the day. Get on with your day as normal. At lunch time buy dried mango, raisins, apple... Anything other than chocolate and crisps.... Remember your trying to assist the healing process. Drink fluids. If your in your home have a couple off your prunes. You don't have to worry about your dinner but I always ensured there was either sweet corn, beans or broccoli as part off that. Big glass of water to wash it down. Before you go to bed take 3 psyllium husk capsules, 4 prunes and a glass off water.
I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THAT YOU PERSEVERE AND DONT CONSUME THAT MUCH FIBRE YOUR GOING 3 TO 4 TIMES A DAY. That may be great once the fissure/ pile is healed but not when your trying to heal it. You want to get to one movement a day and no more than two. Go when your body tells you to go and once done get up and use a wet wipe. Don't ever strain even when having a pee!!
In a few weeks you'll have a movement and think...god that wasn't as bad ( still sore but not as sore) then it'll go completely!!! Trust me!!
Only today I cancelled my doctors appointment as I no longer need it!
